In addition to selling produce, condiments, and meats, the Gaoua open market also has a covered labyrinth of a wide variety of consumer goods, electronics, and clothing, much of which is cheap junk. The more interesting stuff sold are the native products sold by Lobi in the open area under the trees. Much of the fabric sold here is African print cotton fabrics produced by India and China. Most of the manufactured consumer goods are cheap Chinese imports.
